Exploration, Excitement, Experiences!
That’s what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.
What Will You Learn?
You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor Holly by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives.
During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.
The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – night diving, buoyancy control, search & recovery, altitude diving and many more.
Get credit! Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI Specialty Diver Course. Ask Holly for more information about Specialty courses available at Aqua!
